In genial Spring, beneath the quiv’ring shade,
Where cooling vapours breathe along the mead,
The patient fisher takes his silent strand,
Intent, his angle trembling in his hand:
With looks unmov’d, he hopes the scaly breed,
And eyes the dancing cork and bending reed.
-Alexander Pope (1688-1744)

Daily Good: The Capacity for Successful Solitude

“The capacity to be alone is the capacity to know enough about yourself and who you are, and be comfortable enough with that. That way, when you are with another person, youre not trying to make that person into somebody you need them to be in order to buttress a fragile sense of your own self. You can actually turn to a person and see them as another person, and have a real relationship with them.” Sherry Turkle shares more. { read more }

Inner Journey:

ACCEPTING REALITY

“…self-contempt never inspires lasting change.”
— Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter

I can suck myself down into a deep, black hole when I focus on what I think I SHOULD be… more loving, sexy, productive, whatever. Thinking I should be something else means I’m not good enough now. This is poverty thinking and a guaranteed way to be miserable.

I can let go of this suffering by accepting WHAT IS. I can say, “This is how I am right now and that’s okay.”

When I first tried this, I could say it but not believe it. Then I began to experience the freedom this perspective brings – just by changing my mind! Now I’m beginning to believe it. What a gift!

“When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.”
— Byron Katie

A Note from the Universe
Those folks who meet with life success and then tell the world it was due to their hard work, really make my job challenging. They almost NEVER work harder than others. They don’t even work smarter than others.

They simply leveraged the magic by thinking, speaking, and acting in line with what they wanted.

But, oh, no, they have to go out and tell impressionable minds that it was their hard work, and so, for all who listen and nod, it becomes hard work.

Leverage the magic –

Fortune
“The day of fortune is like a harvest day,
We must be busy when the corn is ripe.”

-Goethe (1749-1832)
There are times when everything just seems to come together. It seems easy, almost like magic! When that happens, we’re going with the flow. We’re in tune with nature. There’s a saying that luck is when preparation meets opportunity. When we’ve taken the steps, planted the seeds, and tended the garden, then we have to expect that at some point our efforts will make a difference. Are we ready when it’s time to reap the rewards?

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Pope

Groups are the Pope’s main focus, so if you’re in a relationship, spend time with others in order to gain a greater perspective. If you’re single, going out in groups can increase your chances of meeting someone new. There is safety in numbers, and in staying with fixed and/or assigned romantic roles. Save thinking outside of the box for another day.
